Moonbat update 7-6
According to the rate sheet, Daily Kos generates gross annual revenue of $832,000.
So how much of that moolah does the Moonbat Mullah give to support Democrats?
According to FEC figures, $3,850 in the past six years.
Remember that, while you read the latest article from The Hill, about La Blogga Nostra's 2006 strategy:
In other words: Let's pick a loser!
Four of the most powerful left-wing political bloggers have developed a new joint strategy to steer financial support from the “netroots,” or Internet-based activists, to Democratic challengers, many of whom they know have little chance of winning their mid-term election races.
Markos Moulitsas Zúniga of Daily Kos, Matt Stoller and Chris Bowers of MyDD and “DavidNYC” of Swing State Project have endorsed 16 candidates and posted their names at Act Blue, a website that allows visitors to contribute money to campaigns.
A Democratic challenger need not pass any policy litmus test to earn endorsement; the four bloggers merely need to agree to go ahead. The endorsements depend on the candidate’s having won a measure of support from bloggers in his or her district.
Crucially, the candidate does not have to have a good chance of winning. Bowers said their hope is to “stretch Republican defenses” and turn less-noticed races into top-tier races, which will encourage more activity on the Internet.
“The point of the netroots endorsement is to beat Republicans directly [in a few races], lock down their resources indirectly and support” Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean’s 50-state strategy, Stoller wrote at MyDD, referring to Dean’s efforts to run strong candidates in Republican areas.
And yes, while Jerome "Vis Numar" Armstrong and his gang rake in the revenue, it really bothers Markos that he has to beg his blog visitors for money:
On June 30, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) filing deadline for money raised in the second quarter, Moulitsas pleaded for his denizens to make last-minute contributions.
